Fruition may enjoy an international reputation, but this central Denver restaurant is also a real neighborhood restaurant. Irresistible dishes that make you swoon, unpretentious consistency and sincerity, a pedigreed but informal staff, and laid-back dining rooms that encourage conversation with friends and strangers: These are hallmarks of a neighborhood restaurant. And Fruition, chef-owner Alex Seidel's homage to indulgently comforting cuisine, merges all of those attributes into nuanced suppers that keep you coming back for more. His menus let the farm-to-table ingredients (some from Fruition’s own farm) shine, permitting the premium produce and top-of-the-line meats to take the spotlight without the need to mask anything with an excess of herbs or spices. Everything is just-so, from the precise and impeccable service to the last dot of sauce on a plate. Reservations are still tough to come by -- the books are nearly always filled with regulars -- but when the mood strikes and there are seats available, dinner here can become one of those unplanned, wonderful nights out that don't happen nearly as often as they should.
